      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

just make sure when you take the boat out that all the water is out of the livewell AND PUMP.. its the pump your worried about, not the livewell. If you have water in the pump itsself, which can be hard to tell you will break it.. I like to sometimes run a little earth friendly antifreeze through them(not into the lake abviouly.. just into a bucket which I can then properly dispose.

Good advice as always Diezt. That RV anti freeze will displace any water in the outlet line that might have a dip in it where water collects.

You can dump some RV antifreeze (pink stuff) into drains until it exits rear of boat, and as Diets said run through the pumps. Be sure to activate the valves, to have recirculation working also. Anything with water pockest inside will freeze and possibly crack hoses/housings etc.

Sounds like good advice! Do I need to do that every time I pull the boat out of the water even if I don't use the live wells HTB

I think I read in a different post that some guys just blast a shot of compressed air through the system. Me, I don't worry about it and haven't had to replace one in atleast 10 yrs.
